Huddersfield University design students investigated colour in the circular economy during a workshop with the SDC. The students examined different fabric samples in teams to find out where the fibres came from, how colour was applied, what the potential applications were for that sample, and how it fits in to a circular economy.

I have a confession… I have a professional crush on someone! I name drop him whenever I can, I refer people to his writing, I tell them where he works, I can’t stop thinking about what he says and how he says it and obviously I follow him on Twitter.
Are you thinking of entering the SDC International Design Competition 2017? The theme for 2017 is ‘design for a circular economy’. As always, the focus is on colour and its use in the design process, and you will need to analyse and justify the resources used. This includes the dyes, chemicals, materials and processes used to commercially produce your product within a circular economy.
One of the key concepts you’ll need to consider is ‘Reduce, Recycle, Reuse.’ In this blog we take a look at what this means.
